Hand Sanitizer (WHO Formula)
This is the World Health Organization-recommended formula for hand sanitizer. The recipe has been scaled down for home use.
- 1 cup 99% Isopropyl alcohol OR 1 cup plus 4 teaspoons 91% Isopropyl alcohol
- 1 tablespoon 3% hydrogen peroxide
- 1 teaspoon glycerin
Tip the alcohol, peroxide and glycerin into a 2-cup glass measure. Then add enough water to bring the total quantity to 1 1/3 cups. Mix well.
Pour, via funnel, the sanitizer into small ("travel-size") bottles. I used squeeze-type bottles, but spritzer- or spray-type bottles are ideal.
